Northshore Summit Park opens in Kenmore

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Northshore Summit Park is Kenmore’s newest park, which opened in May 2014.

Located at 6200 NE 193rd St. in Kenmore, this 3.6 acre neighborhood park is great for walking, playing, having picnics and exploring. Last month, the park was used for a neighborhood block party, organized by families in the community, including Nicole Suarez.
